Upon pressing play, you’re immediately greeted with a groovy bass line that hooks you almost instantly. Allow yourself to be caught on the hook, and you’ll stay there until the end of the EP. These guys have been knocking around a while now, and have the ability to write great songs, five of which are on here. It would seem though that they’ve gotten a little dirtier. This is predominantly punk influenced, but it’s really quite heavy in places.
Musically they seem to bring a lot more attitude with them than their last effort, and the songs have a much keener edge to them. Vocally too there’s more venom and aggression, and that of course matches the music very well. The songs still manage to keep the catchy element though, and each track could be classed as a bona-fide ear worm. Their short, punchy, and will have you singing along in no time.
So then, what you get is twenty or so minutes of rock anthems delivered with the subtlety of a sledgehammer and the attitude of a Tasmanian devil. It’s not good tempered by any means, and if you don’t treat it with respect, it’ll tear you a new one. It’s loud, it’s brash, has no bells or whistles, and to put it simply it’s just good, honest rock music. So if you’re looking to go somewhere on a musical journey, get yourself along to Syren City and Escape for a while. You’ll be glad you went, and you may even find that you’re equally sorry to leave.
